Just wanted to say hello. Have been riding for 50+ years. Mostly Goldwings but now have a 2001 K1200lt. Wonderful bike trying to learn all I can about it. Have already been to Glacier park and the Black Hills on it. Great performer.

Re: New member

Welcome Harry. Your first order of business should be to watch all of the K-LT videos done by Kirk Johnson of the BMW Motorrad club of Northern Illinois. There is so much good information in these videos about your bike. Any questions, post them here in a new thread if you can't find what you need by doing a search. There isn't a better forum on the net for the LT. Your bike may need some maintenance as any 18 year old would like brake lines and some other necessary service.

Yes, I have already been with Kirk Johnson with most of the video's. Already changed brake lines to Spiegler. Followed video from Kirk on ABS bleed. Removed the gas charcoal filter. No issues with the map sensor. Left plug connected. New Mets on front and rear. Gets over 50mph at 75mph. Previous owner was my brother and bike was maintained by BMW in San Antonio Tx. Had 31,000 when bought in Jan 2017. Now 39,000. Soloed to Glacier National park Montana, and to the Black Hills. Not one hiccup on the trip. Already park in gear when on the side stand. 50+ years of riding finally common sense riding Ha Ha. Will be getting rs mirrors. Don't like having to look down to see behind me.
